 Lady_Liberty_crossing_the_Brooklyn_Bridge The Occupy Wall Street Puppetry Guild presents:
Jack and the Corporate Beanstalk

It tells the story of Jack, an unemployed member of the 99% who fights his way to the top of the corporate beanstalk only to realize his only true power as a worker is to organize!  It's audience-participatory, it has music, facts about labor history and the current economic crisis, and the audience gets to choose how it ends.  It's big and fun in the name of social justice!

By William Shakespeare - abridged by Kelly Johnston
Four actors, a trunk of props and a ladder. All in one hour, all outdoors.
Much Ado About Nothing. Hold onto your tights, ladies and gents... this ain't your grandma's Shakespeare.

summerstreets_high Join us for the fifth annual Summer Streets! On August 4, 11 and 18 from 7am to 1pm, nearly seven miles of New York City’s streets will be opened up for everyone to play, run, walk and bike. From the Brooklyn Bridge to Central Park, along Park Avenue and connecting streets you can rock climb at 23rd Street, get your photo taken on FringeNYC's big couch at 51st Street and Park Ave, soar through the air on a zip line at Foley Square or just stroll along and experience the city’s streets in a new way—all for free. Summer Streets is organized by NYC DOT, in cooperation with other city agencies. Summer Streets is of DOT's commitment to providing top-notch transportation infrastructure for our growing city while squarely facing the problem of climate change and improving the City's quality of life.
